Draw Closer – 7/9/15
The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. Psalm 23:1 

Dear friends of Come Rest,

The Lord’s return draws near. We must draw nearer to Him and let Him shepherd us like never before. Our ministry has been on alert praying Psalm 64 and living Matthew 6:25-34 throughout June. We were awaiting further instructions on June 30th. We believe we have heard the Lord speak and confirm the following for Come RestMinistries through the end of August. Please consider living this and sharing this with your families, your friends, your churches. We are to…

Continue praying a Psalm 64 “prayer shield” over the priesthood of all believers. Now more than ever.

Continue living Matthew 6:25-34. I have memorized it and am now speaking His words over myself and others in prayer. Please try it.

Begin meditating upon Psalm 23. Go over it “line by line.” We suggest you make one verse your focus per week. Memorize it. Pray it. The Lord is waiting to reveal Himself and His plans as we do this. Ask for divine appointments with family and friends to  witness to them concerning your Psalm 23 verse of the week and pray for them according to the verse as He leads.

Begin meditating upon James 4 and doing what He says there! Draw closer to Him and He will draw closer to you.


The Supreme Court of the US has once again made a decision in open rebellion against God’s Word. There will be consequences. Let’s make sure that the greatest consequence is unprecedented repentance, rest, and fruitfulness in the Body of Christ! We must cast our cares upon the Lord; we must each repent of our own sin and comeup into higher purity, clarity and charity; we must each repent before the Lord and ask for mercy for our wayward nation, churches, family members, friends, and enemies. Surely the Lord will use what was meant for evil as a goad to prompt His people into His purifying fire of love!

Remember, we must be people of good report like Caleb. There are indeed giants in the land and fortified cities, but we are well able to come up and take the land! Jesus reigns! Let Him reign in you, let the Holy Spirit rein you in! Let Him shepherd you with repentance, rest, and real fruit!

Enjoy your life with the Lord each wonderful day! He is looking forward to all He will do with your life! Join Him in the joy!

Thank you for your prayers, support, and participation in Come Rest! Send us your prayer requests. One dear woman experienced Jesus’ healing touch at our last Fountain Friday and is bringing her friend this Friday expecting a miracle healing! Jesus’ reigns!

We are looking forward to this Sunday when our joyful grandson Caleb Richard Spinden will be dedicated at River of Life! In Jesus’ name we declare little Caleb will become a lionhearted man of God who will lead the Lord’s people to come up and take the land in adventurous times!


We love you all!
